It's a New Look!
I've been wanting a new blog template for awhile, but I'm really picky. I finally decided on this particular one and Rene kindly did the technical stuff for me. :-)
I would like to learn more about HTML and web design, but when I think about doing it, it just seems so overwhelming. Maybe if I could learn a bit at a time, it wouldn't be too bad.
This Month's RWR
If you are a member of RWA and received the Romance Writer's Report, check out the PROgress article by Barbara Samuels in the new issue. Even if you're NOT a PRO, you'll benefit from it!

So I decided that I'm going to devote a good hour to my writing tonight - thus, my daughter will definitely be in bed early! And as long as the dog cooperates (i.e. doesn't beg me to take him outside or otherwise entertain him), I should be able to write a few pages, at least.
